I am jealous of my friends who have grown up LDS. There are a multitude of reasons why, but one of them is that their mothers made them dinner! I grew up on mac & cheese and hot dogs. That's pretty much it. When my parents were together my dad made real meals, but by then I was so picky I never ate them. Now, I refuse to let my kids suffer the same picky fate I did, and I try to cook for them every day. I'd say a good 80% of our meals are baked from scratch. I even bake my own bread!! No electronic breadmaker here, folks.
Anyways, there are a few meals that I stumble onto on Pinterest and I think to myself, "BY THE GODS, THIS LOOKS FANTASTICALLY UNHEALTHY! I MUST PLACE THIS THING INTO MY PIEHOLE AND LET MY TUMMY DIGEST ITS BUTTERY GOODNESS!" Come to find out, it's pretty much a staple at most LDS households. (And for those of you wondering, yes, I try to eat healthy, but let's face it, when you're raising a miniature army like most Mormon mommies, you can't afford to shop at Whole Paycheck.)
So, long story short, tonight I'm making a Taco Ring. It looks fantastic, and only the packaged crescent roll dough is unhealthy, so YAY! If anyone wants to leave any recipes that were a staple in their home growing up, I'd love to have them! I secretly can't wait until our ward decides to compile a cookbook. I hear that happens in every ward ever about every 10 years or so.
